Good Three Stooges short!
13 October 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The Three Stooges has always been some of the many actors that I have loved. I love just about every one of the shorts that they have made. I love all six of the Stooges (Curly, Shemp, Moe, Larry, Joe, and Curly Joe)! All of the shorts are hilarious and also star many other great actors and actresses which a lot of them was in many of the shorts! In My opinion The Three Stooges is some of the greatest actors ever and is the all time funniest comedy team!

Another good Stooge short! Christine McIntyre is so lovely and evil and the same time is this one! Also in this one are Ralph Dunn, Barbara Bartay, Emil Sitka, and Charles Knight. The Stooges are very good and especially Shemp and Larry! There is a similar short like this one called Who Done It? This too is a good one to watch around Halloween time!
